I stayed here with my partner and his teenage daughter in 2 of the new studio apartments. We had a lovely holiday, greatly enhanced by the friendly and helpful owners Marcos and Smara. The hotel is small and set out of the way of touristy areas. The views are amazing, the beds were comfortable, the showers were strong with plenty... More

I brought a group of Canadians to Mourtzanakis Residence and it was an unforgettable experience. Marcos and Smaro, the owners, treated us like family. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The food is some of the best I've had in Greece... it was simply delicious! I have nothing bad to say, except that I wish I could of stayed longer!... More

The perfect place where restore yourself. The residence is based in an excellent location, because is on the top of the street that connects Agia Pelagia to Achlada (more or less 10 minutes by car). You can delight in a great quiet and in an amazing view and at the same time you can quickly reach shops, restaurants and beaches.... More

All of them have big terrace with view on the sea and on the ancient Achlada village. I thing every visitor should at least once taste the culinary arts of owners, Smaro,Marco... More

We have just returned from 5 nights at the Achlada Mourtzanakis Residence. It is a wonderful, peaceful location yet not too far from beaches, tavernas and the fast road going either East or West. The hosts, Marcos, his wife and son, are what makes this place extra special, offering good old fashioned hospitality and extensive local knowledge. We ate there... More
